I finished my blurb and turned it in. I hate blurb writing!

Re: Author's Thread #12

Wow, I just got my first ever Bookbub deal. It's international but I didn't think I'd ever get one.

^That's gorgeous! :eek: I wish I had that kind of talent... or at least a decent image editor. I might end up using that (if you don't mind).
Sure, go ahead.

^I think it might. I'll have to check.

As for the rest of the book I think it might be ready to go, at least after a final runthrough.
What about this?

Re: Author's Thread #12

I've been keeping busy. Finished my NaNo manuscript and sent it off to my editor. Wrote a short story for an upcoming anthology that I have to have polished and sent in by the 30th. Now I'm working on a pi-day themed story for my other series. Also somewhere in there is marketing stuff.

Re: Author's Thread #12

I hosted my first facebook party for a new release and it was freaking exhausting. Picked up a couple new readers, but damn. That thing was so much work for a single day.

I got PSL done ten days before I needed to uploaded the full manuscript. Now to try to get everyone to pre-order it. Ugh.

I hope to write at least one more of both before the year ends. Fingers crossed. I am DOA thanks to stupid dental shit right now.

Re: Author's Thread #12

Writing a full novel in a month, then turning around and editing for people in under a month is nuts. Don't do it!

It's Reefcake day, and I'm one scene away from finishing my Fall Fairy story. So at least there's that.

Re: Author's Thread #12

The god damn algorithm. In the end I had to have the original publisher email them to say that I had the right. It's such a fucking mess. Amazon, leaves the real plagiarizers in order to attack writers.

Re: Author's Thread #12

I did send them the PDF of the reversal of rights from the anthology publisher. Amazon just brushed it off and said it wasn't enough. I don't even know if the anthology is the problem. They don't explain shit.

Re: Author's Thread #12

I have a new huge problem. I updated my Gettin' Lucky book with a link to the next in the series. No big deal, right? Amazon's suddenly decided that I'm not the copyright holder of my own book and I don't have the right to publish it. I explained it was in an anthology before, I sent the right rever...

Re: Author's Thread #12

It's fucking annoying as shit that I keep putting in the effort and other people benefit without returning it. Just dumping them and going somewhere else doesn't help me at all.

Re: Author's Thread #12

I joined two author groups to share new releases. Two! Neither is bothering to post about my book coming out tomorrow despite me getting them the info a week ago and jumping through every hoop. I don’t know why I try. I don’t know why I bend over backwards to help other authors. I don’t know why I s...

It's romcom contemporary for my publisher. Though this is under the LGBT imprint while my first book will be their M/F one.

I keep trying to start my Viking Werewolf idea but my brain does not want to cooperate. Some silly part of me thought I'd be able to publish it by November.
